Post them here...Anything interesting or rare we can be turned on to.

Here's a nice one from the great John Renbourn, one of the great acousitc players. He was in Pentangle with the equally great Bert Jansch. ... ed&search=

How about this acoustic piece from Richard Thompson, former Fairport Convention guitarist. I think Thompson's electric lead playing was at times very similar to Jerry's.

Yes, I think so.

Hopefully it will stay visible and people will post in here, makes it easier throwing things in one place.

You really can't beat Joe Pass, he fits any mood, season or time. Pure class.

I wonder if many round here know of Davey Graham? Well he is without question one of the greatest acoustic guitar players of all time, I'd rank him right near the very top. He was the first folk guitar hero for the British and acoustic guitar idol for a whole generation. His disciples include Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and Donavan and then slightly after came John Martyn, Richard Thompson, Jimmy Page and Nick Drake. You can also trace Neil Young's acoustic side to Graham through Bert Jansch. His most famous piece Anji has been copied by anyone and everyone and he also invented the DADGAD tuning. I'd suggest getting any of his early - mid 60's stuff, the way he combined world styles to Gaelic melodies puts him ahead of the rest. Sadly I can't find any good footage of him on youtube, I do have some great bbc video footage of him on tape. But what they do have is this weird clip of him playing when he was still a kid - about 18 or something:

Speaking of John Martyn as well, (dig the effects!) try this for size:

And now, for something completely different...

Another version of Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, not quite like the Dead's version and yet...

a shitload of Dead bootleg clips

Jerry on Wolf!

this pretty much confirms to me that Jerrys rig was much more important in getting that tone than the guitar he was playing, since Wolf sounds just like Rosebud and Tiger in some of those

Im gonna get that 74 tone somehow

"Man I thought Mick was going to kiss John right there!!!"........I totally agree with that, but maybe that was all part of the show...or they were just really high...who knows. Rock Stars are eccentric.

Django: ... ed&search=

Wes Montgomery:

Then changing ship slightly...

Albert Lee:

The Shadows, now looks very cheesy but Hank Marvin is one of the greats and was Neil Youngs guitar hero. Listen to Guitar Tango by the Shadows.

Ahhhh, good stuff. Joe Pass is always mind boggling to watch play.. I simply love his stuff. Has anyone heard his album with Niels-Henning Orsted Pederson - "Chops"? It's phenominal, NHOP is an awesome addition to his playing on it.

I really dug that Shadows video too, does anyone have some info on them?
